Brace yourselves, for this might be some of the cutest photos you see today. Wednesday, 26 August is being celebrated as "International Dog Day", and social media certainly seems to be on board with the idea.

Twitter has certainly embraced the idea, and on Wednesday, photos of some of the most beautiful and endearing dogs around were posted to the social media platform.
